Where did you get the installer from? Mozilla.org ? There should not be a problem.

What software claimed there was a virus?

This usually happens if you download the small stub (online) installer. This small installer downloads additional files from the Mozilla CDN server and that looks suspicious to some security software. To avoid this you can download the full (offline) installer from the Mozilla server.
